In 1987 I Had the honor of being apprenticed under Scott Sterling and the Late great Sailor Moses’ at the word famous California Studio in Biloxi MS. I stayed in Biloxi until 92, after that I had the great opportunity to work with the magical Juli Moon at her studio in Seabrook NH. Learning to tattoo and working at these amazing shops allowed me to learn the many different styles of tattooing that I practice today.
In 1990 I attended my first convention with Moses, and have worked almost 200 since then. Gathering over 250 awards including National Tattoo Associations Best Tattooist award in 2014.
In 1994 I returned to Minnesota and opened Electric Dragonland Tattoo Studio, and after more than 20 years in Hopkins we are still going as strong as ever.
during that time I also served 10 years on the Board of Directors of the Alliance of Professional Tattooists. This organization is one of the industries largest trade associations, it’s main focus is teaching safe tattoo technique. I served 4 years as the organization’s President.
I like to focus on many styles of tattooing, from portraits to bodysuits. Bio-mechanical to traditional Japanese. Black and grey to full blown color. There is not much I don’t enjoy doing. I do not do hate tattooing, satanic tattooing,cosmetic or other facial tattooing.
